Hi Everyone...

I was in transition for a bit, but I am back

Just recently  moved to Wisconsin and loveeee it. Curious if being at a lower altitude will change my weight at all? I thought I was doing great, and then I hopped on a scale at the gym and it was more than I thought However, I usually lose weight when I go back to sea level.

Any thoughts? Also, I think the stress of moving and eating late at night may have contributed to the few pounds gained. I am not going to stress though... I will just listen to my body and keep doing what I am doing! Yah!!! Finally on my way to a feeling of peace and contentment.

When I moved from sea level to high altitude, I didn't notice any change in my weight (due to the elevation change). My weight went up for reasons of being in a stressful relationship.


Let go of resistance; feel appreciation for what is, and eagerness for what is coming.

Where did you move to specifically, Marjorie? We live in the twin cities in an eastern suburb, not far from Wisconsin. My husband has family in Colorado; Castle Rock and also Brush.

I don't know if altitude affects weight. Inconsistent eating habits probably have more to do with it. We took a long trip in April out east and I thought I was eating at least 50% compliant; but I felt pretty crappy after returning home and my hormones were noticeably altered (referring to my cycle) after that.

Don´t know about altitude but
I gain weight when it gets cold here
- and looses in summertime
- but I have noticed that when summers are cold ( like last year ) I don´t lose weight.
When I lived in Ireland my weight stayed the same
- cause there were not that much difference between summer and winter compared to here.

Some it is that you eat dfferent in different climates- but I don´t think it is all of it,

You do weigh less at a higher altitude, but it isn't a significant amount. Don't stress about what the scale might say, focus on your health. Glad you feel you are in the right place, good luck!

Probably has something to do with the move; moving is stressful & has probably had an impact on your metabolism.

Thanks for input and I will drop the few pounds soon... I guess it is hard to figure out what I did so differently as far as my eating.

I think it was alot to do with eating late at night and then going to bed.

so nice to have the support and thank you. A new start again tomorrow. I start working again ( waitress for the summer)

Hi I am in Madison now, but I lived in Denver for two years. I am definitely coming to visit the twin cities since I am here now, when I have time.

I am sure you are right and I was compliant but not eating the normal portions and probably was ( and still am ) exhausted

Where in the East? I am from NY originally.

I know that this kind of behavior will put on pounds in this body, no matter what I eat.

Intestines can change the amount of nutrients they absorb, depending on a variety of factors.  The first quote on this blog post describes this:

My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

Marjorie,

One thing I've noticed when I travel is how much more sluggish my digestion and elimination becomes, even when I'm trying not to overeat. Sitting in a vehicle and not moving around much has quite an impact on me. We eat a lot of meals while driving and when we don't it's often followed by inactivity. That's bound to mess up anybody's metabolism.

We live in Inver Grove Heights which is south of Saint Paul and east of Minneapolis. We live very close to the Mall of America and the airport. My husband also lived near Buffalo, New York as a child as well as different areas of Colorado because his parents were divorced when he was very young and they shared custody of him.

I know how you feel about the stability and contentment that comes after you move. We have done it many times and it sure does feel good to get back to living a "normal" life afterwards (that is if you like your new home). I think we have a lot in common.
